Retail TouchPoints (RTP), the industry's go-to source for customer engagement strategies, has announced the 2018 Retail Innovator Award winners and names Julie Campbell, Vice President Marketing of Astral Brands, as the winner in the category of Influencer Marketing. In its fifth year, the Retail Innovator Awards honor business leaders who are embracing positive disruption in retail.

"It was a great year for disruption in the retail industry," said Debbie Hauss, Editor-in-Chief of Retail TouchPoints. "We are impressed by the innovative and unique strategies, technologies and ideas retail executives launch into the increasingly competitive retail marketplace. Undeterred by talks of a 'Retail Apocalypse,' these pioneers are forging forward with long-term sustainability as their goal."

"On behalf of the entire team at Astral Brands, we are honored to be recognized for our breakthrough influencer marketing strategies. The ability for one person to be connected to many others is very powerful, and when you have this level of connection, you can really move a message via a single voice," said Campbell. "Our success in influencer marketing has taken some time to develop but I believe we have finally found our sweet spot. Our health and beauty brands serve as a back drop for individual discovery, interaction, bonding and community building. From there, we try to let the rest happen organically."
